Your family

With winding stone staircases, suits of armour and secret panels, Thornbury Castle offers a truly magical experience for older families.

Although Thornbury Castle does not feature the family facilities you will find at the other Luxury Family Hotels, we believe with its tales of knights, princesses, kings and queens, the castle is ideal for older children who enjoy being part of a grown up 'castle experience'. For this reason we welcome children aged from 10 years upwards who will be wide eyed at the chance to stay in a real life castle!

The regal dining rooms take reservations from 6.45 pm and we can also organise child sitters if the grown ups would prefer to enjoy a more romantic dinner later on in the evening. We offer archery and croquet on site and of course we have over 14 acres of gardens and grounds to explore!
